INTRODUCTION. 



Columbia county, in the State of New York, lies on the east bank of the 
Hudson river, between Dutchess county on the south and Rensselaer county 
on the north, and extends to the boundary line of the State of Massachusetts. 
It is about thirty-six miles in length and about twenty miles in breadth, with 
an area of 688 square miles, and a population of 47,928. Its capital city is 
Hudson, and its minor divisions or townships are Ancram, Austerlitz, Canaan, 
Chatham, Claverack,* Clermont, Copake, Gallatin, Germantown, Ghent, Green- 
port, Hillsdale, Kinderhook,f Livingston, New Lebanon, Stockport, Stuyve- 
santf and Taghkanick.§ 

The earliest mention of this tract of country is found in a monograph by 
Henry Hudson, the discoverer, when on the evening of September 17, 1609, 
he anchored opposite the spot now occupied by the county seat which bears 
his name. In ancient days it was sparsely inhabited by Indian tribes resid- 
ing on the bank of the Hudson and in the Taghkanick hills. 

The first European settlers of the county seem to arrange themselves in 
r groups : the Dutch settlers from Albany, the tenants of the Livingston 
; mor, the settlement of German palatinates, and the gradual immigration 
New England families. 

Under the Dutch government, and the directors of its West India Com- 

ny, a large number of Holland families settled in what are now known 
the townships of Kinderhook, Ghent, Stuyvesant, Stockport and Claver- 

k, the latter being the seat of the Van Rensselaers, as patroons of the 

wer manor, which comprised not less than 170,000 acres of land. The

vi INTRODUCTION. 

earliest records are those of the Dutch Reformed Church, which establish 
the fact that very many well-known county names were among its earliest 
settlers, and are still represented by numerous descendants. The Van Rensse- 
laers, for example, in two direct lines from the founder of that historic 
family in America. 

The Livingston Manor originally contained upwards of 160,000 acres, and 
included a large portion of the present townships of Livingston, Clermont, 
Copake, Ancram, Gallatin, Germantown and Taghkanick, being granted by a 
patent issued by Governor Dongan to Robert Livingston in 1685, and con- 
firmed by royal charter in 17 15. Descendants of this distinguished family 
still reside within the limits of the county, although the old manor house 
at Clermont, and nearly all the estate, have passed from possession of the 
descendants of the first Lord of the Manor. Robert Livingston, although a 
Scotchman by birth, does not seem to have introduced to America many of 
his own countrymen. A refugee in Holland, he appears to have come to 
this country with strong Dutch proclivities, and his intimate connections 
with the Van Rensselaers gave a distinctively Dutch character to the Liv- 
ingston colony. 

In the year 17 10, Queen Anne, through Governor Robert Hunter, pur- 
chased from Robert Livingston 6,000 acres of land on the Livingston Manor 
for the settlement of German palatinates who had served in the British army, 
and formed the original settlement of what is now known as Germantown. 
Some of the first settlers removed to the Mohawk and Schoharie valleys, 
but the descendants of not a few are still residing in the township. 

The township of Canaan, which was afterward divided into New Lebanon 
and parts of Chatham and Austerlitz, was first occupied by emigrants from 
New England, Samuel A. Curtis being the first white child born in the 
place; but the great influx of American settlers took place after the declara- 
tion of Independence in 1776; and the unsettled condition of affairs pre- 
vious to that epoch is evident from the fact that a very large number of 
the lineages in this volume can only be traced to the revolutionary period, 
family records having been lost when the members thereof were engaged in 
a great national struggle, and the whole country was in a state of turmoil 
and transition. 

The object of the present undertaking is to preserve in the deluge of 
time the pedigrees and salient historic incidents in a family, and to present 
them in the popular form of a direct" pedigree. For many years there has 



INTRODUCTION. vii 

been a growing interest in genealogical research, as the very large collec- 
tions of such works in our leading libraries testify; but they are very often 
diffuse in their character, and not of great importance to the general public, 
whereas the pedigrees of those whose living personality is part of our social 
and national life are of more interest. 

The preservation of pedigrees is not the mere pastime of the idle and 
curious, it is the honorable employment of the student and historian, for it 
has always formed the basis of true history. In the ancient records of 
Assyria, Egypt and Arabia, the pedigree of an individual is usually the 
thread upon which is strung the stirring events of centuries, and so import- 
ant a place did the preservation of a pedigree occupy among the Israelites 
that it was established as a positive obligation upon every Levite in the 
Temple. Josephus regarded genealogical study as of the utmost importance, 
and in giving an account of his personal history, boasts " I have traced my 
pedigree as I found it recorded on the public tablets." Nor is the genea- 
logical form of history peculiar to semetic races. The earliest Greek records 
were also those of pedigrees. The histories of Acusilaus of Argos, and of 
Hectseus of Miletus were entitled genealogies (ysreaXoyiai)^ and the frag- 
mentary histories of Xanthus, Charon of Lampsacus and Hellanicus are 
strongly marked with the genealogical element, whilst in the Greek Testa- 
ment the whole structure of Christianity is based upon the established pedi- 
gree of its founder. 

It is true that in the volume before us there are many lineages which contain 
nothing save the simple records of uneventful generations, but they preserve 
facts which would otherwise be lost in the history of the American nation. 
Examples illustrative of this are seen in a comparison of two lineages of historic 
value as regards Columbia county history — that of Martin Van Buren, eighth 
president of the United States, who was born at Kinderhook in 1782, and that 
of Samuel J. Tilden, governor of New York State and candidate for the presi- 
dency in the great political struggle of 1876, and who was bom in New Leba- 
non. The records of the Van Buren family have not been preserved, and we 
have, therefore, no information regarding the pedigree of Martin Van Buren 
beyond that of his father, although he was undoubtedly descended from an old 
Dutch ancestry — whereas in the case of Samuel J. Tilden we are able to trace 
the lineage of one who is an important figure in American history to the original 
English stock. Some affect to be indifferent to such matters, on the principle 
that we judge of a man as we find him, and not on the merits of his ancestors, 



viii INTRODUCTION. 

but such feelings are not in harmony with those of the student of history and 
of hereditary genius. 

The publication of such details as are given in the present volume have also 
another aspect of importance, inasmuch as they may enable families to trace 
their ancestry to a remote period. Such works as Savage's Genealogical Diction- 
ary of New Efigland* Austin's Dictionary of Rhode Island^] Munsell's First 
Settlers of Albany^ and the long list of works given in Durrie's Alphabetical 
Index to American Genealogies and PedigreesX trace as far as possible the three 
first generations of early American immigrants, and all that is needed is a 
careful investigation regarding the two generations which usually connect the 
present with the past as recorded in those genealogical publications. 

Such a work as the present must also be of some interest and importance to 
many persons in Europe, as enabling them to locate branches of their families 
who have obtained a "local habitation and a name " in the new world.

FRANS JANSEN PRUYN or 

PRUEN (as the name is written presumably

who was the son of John Pruyn of Holland, 
is found settled in Albany with his wife, 
Aeltje or Alida, as early as 1665. Being a 
Roman Catholic, he refused to take the 



oath of allegiance to King William, the 
Protestant king of England, but expressed 
himself willing to swear fidelity. His son 
John, however, subscribed to the oath. 
His widow, Aeltje, joined the Dutch Re- 
formed Church in 1683. He had sons 
Johannes, Samuel, Frans and Arent. Sam- 
uel was the founder of the Albany branch 
of Pruyns, which has held positions of 
trust in that city, and Arent migrated to 
Kinderhook, where his descendants have 
also resided for six generations. There 
are traces of the name in Holland as far 
back as 1333. See Ptuyn Gen. by John V.

The silent Gardiner — plotting, 
The Mitchells good, the Barkers — proud.

A learned Coleman very rare 
And scarce an honest Hussey."

American Genealogical Index, being an al- 
phabetical index to American Genealogies 
and Pedigrees contained in State, County 
and Town Histories, Printed Genealogies 
and kindred works, by Daniel S. Durrie, 
Librarian State Historical Society of Wis- 
consin. Third edition, revised and enlarged 
(last edition), Albany, 1886, Svo, about 245 
pages, cloth, $3. 
This work has been prepared with a view to 
facilitate the study of family history, by fur- 
nishing an index to the genealogies contained 
in the large number of county and town his- 
tories, collections of public and privately 
printed genealogies, centennial anniversary 
celebrations, biographies and other works con- 
taining the desired information. But few per- 
sons have an adequate knowledge of the amount 
of genealogical material to be found in such 
volumes, from the fact, that any thing like a 
full collection of works in those departments 
can only be found in the larger cities, and in 
the hands of a few private parties ; and without 
consulting them, it is often an impossibility to 
prepare a family history, or of learning any 
thing very definite of any particular family. 
With the assistance furnished by this volume, 
no difficulty will be experienced in collecting 
needed information, by any one interested in 
such investigations. It also affords instruction 
to the general reader who may not know whether 
the history of his native county, town or village 
has ever been written and published; but its 
most desirable feature is the knowledge to be 
gained by all persons, whether residing in the 
country or elsewhere, who, by examining its 
pages, can inform themselves whether the gen- 
ealogy or pedigree of any family, or any por- 
tion thereof, in which they may feel an interest, 
has been printed in any volume, and if so, that 
they may have the benefit of such information. 
More than fifteen thousand names are here 
alphabetically arranged. Several hundred vol- 
umes of historical and biographical publica 
tions have been minutely examined in detail, 
and not depending on the indexes, appended to 
such volumes, which are more or less defective 
and incomplete. A number of works not acces- 
sible to the compiler have been examined by 
parties interested in perfecting the work. The 
more important names in Dr. Savage's Genea- 
logical Dictionary have been noticed as well as 
the genealogies found in the volumes of the 
New England Historical and Genealogical Kea- 
inter. This is the only work of the kind pub- 
lished in this country. It has been the aim of 
the compiler to make it as thorough and com- 
plete as possible. The body of the work is pre- 
ceded by a list of principal titles of works re- 
ferred to in the index.
